Feed Hungry Tummies

Animal shelters are always running out of food to feed their precious dogs and cats, so make life a little easier on your local shelter and donate some pet food. This can be something as simple as dry pellets and tinned food, or you can opt for something extra special and donate treats, gravy or food bowls. If you're feeling extra generous, you can even create a hamper filled with yummy treats, bright and colourful toys and something a little more practical, like tick and flea repellent, cat litter or shampoo.

Help Pay Their Bills

With the high cost of vet bills, it's a wonder any animal shelter is left standing after the COVID-19 lockdown. Spare a thought for the injured and sick animals at these shelters this winter and donate a little something. No matter how big or small your donation, it will be much appreciated. If you are unable to donate even a small amount of money, consider asking friends and family to donate on your behalf in lieu of a birthday gift.

Keep A Fur Baby Warm

If there was one thing that every shelter across the southern hemisphere could ask for right now, it would probably be blankets to help keep the animals in their care warm during the cold nights. Help out your local animal charity organisation and donate a few used blankets, towels or dog jerseys. Or if you don't have any to spare, why not buy a few? With winter warmer specials left, right and centre, you'll probably be able to find a few warming blankets at just about any store.

Knit Away

Are you still sitting at home during lockdown? Then why not take up knitting as a hobby and knit a few blankets, jerseys or even toys for a pooch or kitty? You can even get your friends, family, colleagues or fellow community members to join in and start a drive to collect knitted blankets for those in need. It's a wonderful way to get closer to your community and keep busy while helping those in need.

Support Local Initiatives

Another great way to help out charities across Joburg is to support one of their many initiatives. Here are just some of the initiatives in our city:

Pug Rescue

Pug Rescue is an animal welfare organisation based in Benoni. As the name suggests, they take in unwanted and neglected pugs (and honorary pugs) and give them love and care until they can be re-homed. Currently, they are selling masks and buffs for adults and children for R85 - R120 in gorgeous pug-inspired designs. Order yours by emailing [email protected] and help make a difference in the life of a pug.

Paws R Us

Paws R Us rescues dogs throughout the city and cares for them at their shelter in Midrand until they find their furever homes. In an effort to stop the spread of COVID-19, they are selling a range of stylish buffs. These cost just R90 for one, R85 each for two or R75 each for three or more. Email [email protected] to purchase yours.

Saints

Saints in an animal charity shop that sells donated secondhand items and gives the proceeds to animal welfare organisations across Joburg. Help this wonderful shop help others by donating your unwanted clothing, books, homeware or trinkets to their shop. Alternatively, visit their shop in North Riding and purchase a few odds and ends or bid on exclusive items on their Facebook page.

Santa Cause For Paws

Santa Cause For Paws in an online shop selling beautiful customised mugs, handmade baby blankets, unique trinkets and pet treats in a bid to earn much needed funds for animal shelters. Help thousands of homeless animals in the city by purchasing some of the exquisite items on offer at the store, perfect as a gift for your loved ones.

Adopt, Foster or Sponsor

Lastly, one of the best ways to help your local animal shelter stay afloat is to adopt one of the animals in their care. Adopted animals have lots of love to give and truly make the best companions. If you are unable to adopt, why not foster an animal until they find their furever home? If this is also not an option, you can choose to sponsor an animal for just a small amount, ensuring they will stay warm and fed for at least a short while.

About Cat Village

Cat Village has been in operation since 2004. To date, they have taken in approximately 1000 cats who have found their forever home at the Cat Village. The cats at this village are not available for adoption as they come from horrific and stressful situations and need special care.

Cats

Cat Village is a safe, happy and stress-free environment where the cats can roam free. They live on two hectares of natural vegetation, dotted with wooden Wendy houses for shelter. All cats are sterilised, well fed and have water available 24 hours a day, ensuring they are always well cared for.

Who Made It All Possible?

Irma Teller is the special lady who devoted herself to the rescue of abused, abandoned and homeless cats. She and her husband, Herbert, have always had a desire to create a cat sanctuary where they could care and look after unwanted and neglected felines. Their dream became a reality when they found a property in Benoni and turned it into a haven for many cats.

Santa Cause For Paws is a registered NCP in Joburg. Their aim is to assist unwanted, homeless or otherwise neglected animals in any way they can. They do this mostly through raising funds on their website. Despite the name, this organisation runs year-round in a bid to help as much as possible. They have an online store selling trickets and gift ware, with all proceeds going to various charities across Joburg. They also do what they can to help other charities helping animals in townships, feeding ferals and fostering homeless furbabies.

Mugs

Santa Cause For Paws offers a wide range of gorgeous mugs that are fully customisable.

Pledge

This Christmas, thousands of animals will be in animal shelters across Joburg, waiting for their furever homes. Santa Cause For Paws aims to add some wag to their tales this festive season by gifting as many animals as they can with their very own box of treats. You can help them achieve this by pledging to donate a box, or a few boxes, to a kitten, puppy, cat or dog.

Each box should be packed with two things yum (food and treats), something warm (a blanket), something fun (a toy), something useful (tick and flea solution, brush, leash, colour, shampoo) and an optional staff item (a gift for the hardworking staff at the welfare organisations).

After packaging and labeling the box, pledgers can then drop off the donation to one of the many drop-off points across the country. To see the various drop-off points, click here. The package will then be dropped off at shelters throughout the country.

Help Out

There are many ways you can suppawt this extraordinary organisation. Other than suppawting their online store and pledging to donate a box, you can also volunteer, offer your home or business as a drop-off point, assist with transport or make a donation. This year, Santa Cause For Paws aims to raise R140500 for animal welfare organisations across South Africa. They also aim to give 1105 boxes to cats, 1705 boxes to dogs, 595 boxes to kittens and 765 boxes to puppies. The final date for drop-offs is on Sunday, 1 December 2019. Alternatively, you can make a donation until Tuesday, 31 December 2019.

The Rhino & Lion Nature Reserve Is Under New Management

The Rhino and Lion Nature Reserve in the Cradle of Humankind will no longer be offering cub petting to the public, with immediate effect.

For 30 years, the Rhino and Lion Nature Reserve has shared its love of wildlife with local and international visitors. But times have changed. Under the new ownership of the Bothongo Group, the reserve is refocusing its efforts on animal welfare.

Recently appointed Chief Operations Officer of the reserve, Mike Fynn, explains:

Breeding and rearing animals for the purpose of cub petting and interaction is not only undesirable from an animal welfare perspective, it’s also not a sustainable business model. From now on, we will focus on educating the public about wildlife and the importance of conservation. This is why, with immediate effect, we choose to put a stop to cub petting at the Rhino and Lion Nature Reserve and sincerely hope that other facilities responsibly follow suit.

Rhino & Lion Nature Reserve

Over the past few months, the reserve has initiated a three-year plan to upgrade all of its public facilities, habitats and wildlife enclosures, which will be remodeled around the welfare and wellbeing of its animals. Many of them are species that are endangered due to human activity and habitat loss.

According to Fynn, the reserve team will dedicate themselves to a new internal mantra of being a ‘nurture reserve’.

In addition, they will commit to the following:

To those of our visitors who are disappointed that they can no longer cuddle a lion cub at our reserve: this is the right thing to do,” says Khupe. “As animal lovers, we understand how charismatic African wildlife is. But the truth is that our love for our animals may inadvertently harm them, even though we don’t mean to.”

She adds that she’s excited about this new journey: “We take the opportunity to re-welcome the greater public, wildlife stakeholders, tour operators and travel agents to actively support our reserve as it evolves into a BIG, must-see destination, that provides an authentic and informative wild animal experience for generations to come. Our wildlife family now has a voice again.

Arriving here, some may feel a bit lost, out of place or have horror scenes playing in their mind. With the remote and quiet surroundings, this can be expected. However, once you're on the property, you'll made to feel like a welcomed guest.

After the pleasant drive from Joburg to Pretoria, we arrived at the sanctuary worried we were at the wrong place. Although well-marked, it is eerily quiet. Having arrived for the tour early, we ordered drinks at the vegan eatery, while exploring the on-site store. Drinks included a luscious hot chocolate topped with the most delicious whipped cream and a hazelnut latte crowned with melting vegan marshmallows. They were a treat, even to an omnivore palate.

The tour, which runs from 10:00 - 11:00 and 11:30 - 12:30 on Saturdays and Sundays, is completely free. The hour-long tour starts with the floppy-eared, curly-tailed pigs. There are currently three of them housed at the sanctuary, lovingly named Babe, Willow and Alfie. The tour discusses their stories in-depth, including how they got to the sanctuary, their path to health and their current lives. All while visitors get to watch as the pigs terrorise the poor ground keepers, demanding some love.

The tour then followed onto the rabbits and chickens, then to the majestic horses and the naughty goats - Basil, Libi and Beverley. Basil, has to be the personality of the sanctuary with his naughty and demanding antics. But he was able to charm us into falling in love with him at first sight. Beverley has to be the most adorable little kid we have ever seen.

Next, we got to meet the stars of the show. The ladies and the lads are a group of affectionate-hungry donkeys including India, Juliet, Charlie, Delta, Tango, Bravo and Echo. After being rescued from cruel conditions, many of these equines prefer to stay away from human interaction, which the facility supports. However, some of the donkeys have a lot of love, affection and cuddles to offer. Just be careful, a few of them are quite drawn to handbags and may choose to take a bite or steal them.

donkey

The sanctuary also has a few rescued cows. We had the honour of meeting their photogenic girl Grace, and their huge and beautiful boy, aptly named Mr T. We were also lucky enough to be afforded the opportunity to play with the cow's flaps, the loose skin under their necks, and to get some soggy kisses. These animals, who were tortured in the farm and animal testing industry, now live full and happy lives thanks to all the hard work from the dedicated team at Asher's.

When the tour, sloppy kisses and Instagram snaps were done, we decided to end the day with a meal and mini shopping spree. Their store and eatery can easily be described as the Pretorian version of The Fussy Vegan, with the hard-to-find vegan items and scrumptious vegan fare. The menu is small but includes a range of coffees and milkshakes, burgers and hot dogs. We decided to try the Turkish Delight Milkshake, the Crumbed Burger and the Beyond Meat Burger, both served with a side salad and chips.

While waiting for our order, we browsed through the selection at their store. The selection includes vegan biltong, chocolate and caramel sauces, Nature and Moi cheese, vegan ice cream, cool drinks, bags, vegan hot chocolate, vegan sweets, vegan chocolate, Asher's Farm Sanctuary shirts and hoodies, black salt, jack fruit and so much more. And all the proceeds from this and the eatery, go towards caring for the animals on the farm.

After making a few purchases and sponsoring our chosen fluff balls (the noble Mr T and the playful Basil), we sat down for our meal. Wow. The Turkish Delight Milkshake, which was vegan, was mouth-watering and delectable. The salt and pepper chips were golden and crisp on the outside and perfectly fluffy on the inside. And the burgers? The Crumbed Burger was a "chicken" schnitzel on a fresh bun with creamy and tangy sauce, lettuce, tomato and onion slices, cheese and grilled pickles. The Beyond Meat Burger was glorious in size and taste. And for those who haven't tried it yet, it does look and taste exactly like real beef. Or at least the way we remember it tasting.

This was a wonderfully entertaining and informative day out, fulled with vivacious personalities, tasty food and lots of love. We'll definitely be back soon.

If you would like to offer some much need assistance to this organisation, you can do so by volunteering, supporting their cafe and shop or sponsoring an animal. You can also book a free tour here.

Alternatively, contact them on 065 120 2664, email [email protected] or visit their website.

Pets

Rabbits

Many people adopt rabbits, especially during Easter, without knowing the full consequences. Rabbits can be notoriously difficult to care for, especially for children. They need a lot of care such as food, daily exercise outside their cage and special food. Many people choose to "set them free" and leave them in a park. This is problematic as bunnies are domesticated, not wild, and they also breed, creating a population problem. Berario Bunnies and The Strawberry Foundation catch these rabbits and offer them TLC until they can be re-homed.

How you can help: donate cages, blankets and money; can volunteer to help catch the rabbits; foster and adopt rabbits.

Exotic Animals

Hedgehog Rescue and Rehabilitation Centre is based in Germiston. They take in injured hedgehogs and rehabilitate them. They will also offer homes to unwanted hedgies and care from them until they can be homed. The great thing about this rescue centre is that they do not discriminate against other animals. They also offer their services to other exotic animals like birds, reptiles, hamsters, rabbits and rats.

How you can help: donate items on their with list which include: bowls, waterbottles, fleece, newspaper, heating pads, wheels, hay, toys, cages, F10, cleaning products and food for kittens, rats, rabbits, crested gheckos, bearded dragons and hamsters; sponsor an animal; foster an animal and adopt.

Cats and Dogs

We can't leave out cats and dogs. But there are just so many shelters giving love and support to these amazing creatures (thankfully). We couldn't fit it all into this article. Find out more about dog shelters in our Joburg Animal Rescues article. You can also read up on where to adopt pets in our nifty Best Places To Adopt A Pet article.

How you can help: As with all the other organisations on this list, the shelters mentioned in the above articles are always grateful to receive donations in the form of money, blankets, food, bowls and other items on their wishlist. The best way to help any animal charity is to adopt, don't shop.

cat

Farm Animals

Pigs

Many people take in cute little piglets without knowing the needs of such a pet. When they realise the necessities of such animals, they often realise that they are not equipped to handle this. This is where Pigs 'n' Paws steps in. They home many unwanted pet pigs and give them all the care they require. They also take in doggos and pupperinos, because, well, who could turn away a pooch?

How you can help: sponsor a pig; donate building supplies, blankets and food; contribute to vet bills and volunteer.

All Farm Animals

Asher's Farm Sanctuary is based in Pretoria, but it's well worth the visit. They rescue farm animals and offer them forever homes, providing them with food, shelter and lots of love. Their animals aren't up for adoption but visitors are welcome to tour the farm, which is free of charge. They have an on-site store and vegan café (which serves the sought-after Beyond Meat Burger) and the proceeds from these go towards the care of the animals.

How you can help: go on a tour; support their shop and café; volunteer.

Wild Animals

Feral Cats

South Africa has an increasing feral cat population. Not many people or organisations know how to deal with these animals. Feral cats are not tame or stray. They are wild animals, many of which have had hard lives. Therefore, unless they are very young, they can't be homed. This does not make them a burden. They do help control the population of mice, rats, snakes and frogs. The best we can do for them is TNR - trap, neuter and return. This process involves feeding the cats in the same location everyday, the cat is then trapped so that they can be spayed or neutered. Cats can also be treated for any injuries at this stage. Then the cat is released back. Being sterilised will reduce the population over time. Several organisations can help with this such as Feral Care Friends, Feral Cat Assist and The Cat Foundation.

How you can help: provide food, water and warmth for the cats; check your car bonnet and other warm places on cold mornings before driving; donate to feral cat organisations; contact a feral cat organisation to assist with TNR and don't leave poison around for other pests like mice.

Owls

Unfortunately, South Africa has a lot of stigma about owls. As such, people fear them. Owls are also dying out because they get sick when eating poisoned rats, and other pests. Owl Rescue Centre in Hartbeespoort offers sanctuary to such owls. They home them and care for them but they never tame them. These owls get as little human contact as possible to remain wild. They take this a step further by preventing owl poisonings. How, you might ask. Well, they provide rat traps to the public, they will then collect the rodents caught in the trap and feed them to their owls. It's a win-win.

How you can help: donate money; donate plastic bottles (which they use to build owl house, bat houses and bee hives); give them your rats; don't leave out poison for pests and sponsor an owl.

Other Wild Life

Friends Of Free Wildlife is a community organisation that cares for injured or otherwise incapacitated wild animals in need of help. They are strong believers in rescuing, rehabilitation and then releasing the animals back into the wild. Animals that they help include wild birds, genets, jackals and bats. They will assist in any way that they can with any wild animal, whether they are on your property or are injured.

How you can help: volunteer your time; get a MySchool card and donate money or supplies. Click here to see their wish list.

This animal charity store, located in North Riding, is one of our favourites. They offer a wide variety of good quality trinkets, at a low price. And all the proceeds go to various animal shelters. There are plenty of other reasons to shop at this good-hearted store. Here they are:

Retail Therapy

SAINTs sells a wide variety of items in their store, everything from clothing to children's toys and DVDs to vases. Their clothing comes in all sizes, colours and brands and includes t-shirts, pants, scarves, shoes, suits and even wedding dresses. They stock plush toys and dolls among others. They have DVDs ranging from series to music concerts, and vases for all occasions. But what makes them worth the visit are all their trinkets. With clown figurines, collectible mugs and shot glasses, quirky paper weights and unique fridge magnets, there is sure to be something that will add to your collection or make an interesting and affordable gift for a loved one.

Online Shopping

Don't want to go in-store? Not a problem. SAINTs has several online stores including SAINTs GiftsSAINTs Online Boutique, SAINTs Seconds and SAINTs Odds, Sods and Accessories, among others.

Some of the items are truly unique and never-before-seen. SAINTs has also started an annual online sale of scarves, every other day they sell a few different types of scarves in all colours of the rainbow and all the proceeds go to their chosen charity.

clothes

Events

The owner of SAINTs is also owner to the event venue, Murphy's. This venue will host any type of party you want and, of course, everything goes to animal welfare. Not only do they offer an event venue, they also sometimes host their own events such as markets and book sales. SAINTs used to hold a mid-month vegan market, showcasing the best in vegan food and beauty products. They have taken a hiatus from these markets, but we're holding thumbs that they'll be back shortly.

Book Sales

One of the most popular draws to this shop has got to be their books. They sell books for the amazing low price of just R5. Not all their books are quite so cheap, for some of these paperbacks you may have to fork out a whopping R15, but it's for charity. They offer books on every topic and in every genre and their books tend to be quite good quality - no bendy spines and dog ears here. Once every few weeks, they play host to a gigantic book sale in front of the Checkers at the same shopping centre. Here, they choose a charity, have sponsors help them out and sell a massive amount of books at a set price. There is also a trolley next to the stand, where they collect much needed items like dog food and blankets.

How You Can Help

SAINTs is first and foremost a charity store. They are self-run and self-funded and are therefore always looking for extra aid. You can help out this wonderful store by supporting them. Alternatively, you can donate item that are in a good state that you no longer use. Items they accept include home-ware, working electronics, small pieces of furniture, collectibles and memorabilia, clothing, shoes, jewellery, DVDs, CDs, games, toys and books. You are also welcome to volunteer your time, either in store or for one of their book sales. Or you can donate food, blankets, food and water bowls, tick and flea products, shampoo, leashes, collars and treats at the collection trolley at one of the book sales.

Why Adopt

There are many misconceptions out there that animals in shelters are broken, that you can't find the breed you want and that there are only old animals available. None of these could be further from the truth. Shelter animals are full of love and affection, and still have a full life to live and loads to offer. They are also available in any age, breed, gender and colour your could wish for. There are many shelters that are breed specific, too. Here, we don't discriminate against age, gender or breed so we stuck to shelters that offer diversity.

An added benefit of adopting is that you'll save a fortune. Buying pets can easily costs an arm and a leg. And you will still need to take your new pet to the vet for all their shots, deworming and micro-chipping. Shelters on the other hand, include all of these in their adoption fee. At shelters, you'll also have the option of adopting older pets, who tend to already be house-trained and more calm and well-behaved than younger animals.

Dogs

Irwin Animal Rescue

Irwin Animal Rescue Centre NPC is based in De Deur. They rescue, rehabilitate and re-home animals who are abused and neglected. This shelter takes in dogs of any breed, shape, size, colour and age and offers them a mid-way home until they can find furever homes. One only need go through the photos on their Facebook page to see how happy and full-of-life the dogs in their care are. This is definitely the place to find older dogs of any breed, suitable to any family or lifestyle.

Find more information here.

Paws R Us

Based in Midrand, Paws R Us rescues, shelters and re-homes unwanted dogs and strays from across Johannesburg. This no-kill shelter has over 200 dogs in their care, and are working hard to build a Paws Haven. When visiting this site, you'll be amazed at all the love and affection you'll receive from these lovely furbabies. They have dogs of all shapes and sizes including small and large dogs. So, pay them a visit if you're in search of your next lap dog or wanna-be lap dog.

Find more information here.

A New Hope Rescue

This shelter, in Joburg South, fosters unwanted dogs until they can be re-homed. They care for all types of dogs, and even a few pups! All the dogs here have hilarious personalities and attitudes, so this is just the place to adopt the next Instagram star. They have a large variety of smaller dogs including Dachshunds, Terriers, Jack Russells and mixed breeds (our personal favourite) for those without a large garden.

Cats

Kitty Shelter

Kitty Shelter is a no-kill welfare organisation in Norwood. They care for both adults and kittens. The adoption price, which is much less than buying a cat, includes sterilization and up-to-date vaccinations. They work on a foster programme, where their kittens and cats are cared for by foster families until they find their furever homes. This means that the animals here are already used to people, other animals and kids.

Find more information here.

Kitty and Puppy Haven

This no-kill shelter specialises in puppies and kittens, hence the name. Their animals come from veterinarian practices, low income areas and welfare organisations. They give every animal medical care and will not consider euthanisation. And we must say - these animals are absolutely adorable. One doesn't have to browse far down their Facebook page to fall in love.

Find more information here.

SPCA

The SPCA has a branch in almost all towns across Joburg. They take in any animal irrespective of the type, gender, colour, breed or age. Their Cattery always has many different cats. Whether it be kittens or adults; mixed or pure bred; male or female. What we love about the cats here are their various attitudes. There's always the friendly cat, trying to get as close to you as possible. As well as the playful kitten, the chatty fur ball and the shy one hiding behind the rest. Adopting an animal here is cheaper than other shelters. And, they will also give your future furbaby all their shots, anti-parasite treatments, a chip and even a care package.

Rabbits

We all love cute, furry and oh-so adorable bunnies. However not everyone is able to give them the proper care they require. Some people will re-home their pet rabbits but others choose to release them in parks. However, pet rabbits are domesticated and are therefore unable to care for themselves in the wild. Berario Bunnies and The Strawberry Foundation both rescue these rabbits from the park. They also provide homes for rabbits whose owners are unable to care for them. They will feed and care for these rabbits until they are able to find a furever home.

Find out more information about Barario Bunnies here and The Strawberry Foundation here.

Exotic animals

Despite its name, Hedgehog Rescue and Rehabilitation cares for most exotic animals. These include hedgehogs, rats, rabbits, hamsters, reptiles and birds. They take in injured or unwanted animals and rehabilitate and care for them until they are homed. Get in contact with them to find out what you need to know about the needs of exotic pets before adopting one. And if you decide to adopt, Hedgehog Rescue is able to help you find a loving and adorable scaled, feathered or quilled friend.

Find our more information here.

Pigs

Pigs are some of the smartest and cutest animals around. And they certainly make some of the best pets - for those that are able to care for them. Unfortunately many aren't, hence their own shelter in Hennops. Pigs n Paws take in pigs and dogs, and allow them to roam freely on their small holding. If you're looking to adopt a pig, dog or both, and are able to care for them, pay them a visit and meet their feisty furries.

One of the highlights for all of us was a visit to the Lion & Safari Park – if you have not yet visited their new venue on a 600-hectare wilderness reserve in the Cradle of Humankind, then you need to make a plan to visit as soon as possible.

We honestly thought we’d be there for a while and move on somewhere else for the remainder of the day, but there was so much to do that we ran out of time! The children had an absolute blast, and despite our visit taking place in the middle of a heat wave, none of us wanted to leave!

Lion & Safari Park

Here’s whats on offer:

Our plan of action was to begin with a Lion Cub interaction, cappuccinos and ice-cream, guided game drive, long lazy lunch, walk around the facilities while feeding the various ostrich, giraffe and antelope, G&Ts and ice cream and a very long play on the playground. Plus at least an hour spent in the “5 dome shopping experience” on the way out!

Lion & Safari Park

Volunteer Program

Volunteers from all over the world are welcome to apply for the Lion & Safari Park’s volunteer programme. We thought the tour guides were amazingly well trained and passionate about their jobs – turns out that many of them were volunteers!
